MacNN recently published a new review of ActionSoft's Galaga-inspired space shooter, Insectoid. The action game includes over 50 levels, four unique ships, a variety of enemies, and three difficulty modes. MacNN gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.
From the review:
When you start, you can choose from one of three levels and four ships. The levels include Easy for your aging hands or your young kids, Normal for those of us that don't get to play games as often and we like, and Hard. Needless to say, the Hard level is geared for the rough and tumble seasoned gamers. The ships vary in shape, movement and shooting speed, plus special abilities.Check out the full review at the link below.
MacNN: Insectoid Review
The premise of the game, explained in the Help screens, is that youíre an inexperienced pilot who finds himself or herself in the battle for his/her life against the Quíroth. This story scenario seems contrived though. The Help pages also explain a bit about the special power cores, weapons, and bonus points that yield you more ships. You can change the keys used, music, and sound in the Options screen.
Exciting game play, plenty of opposition in a variety of colorful forms, bugs, and critters make Insectoid a winner for anyone who loves the simplicity of a single-shooter game. The best part is there are no blood, no human targets, and no tedious levels that go on too long.
Each screen offers a fascinating look into a different 2D space. That's a lot of great graphics when you consider there are a total of 50 levels in the game. Each system contains ten levels, and if you make it to the sixth level of any one system, you donít need to restart at level 1 if you are annihilated.
